John Cale for Breakfast

I’ll have a bacon sandwich and three glasses of champagne please. This charming photo from 1966 shows poet Gerard Malanga, artist Andy Warhol and our very own John Cale ordering a champagne breakfast at the Automat. They had, naturally, just attended a premiere of Our Man Flint. As you can see, sartorially, Cale is in full-on I'm the coolest Welshman to have ever walked the planet mode. Oh to have been that humble canteen lady!
